The other motorcycle, the Continental GT 650 Twin is an evolution of the Continental 535 on sale currently. It shares all the chassis components such as the front forks, brakes and the frame with the Interceptor. However it’s styled like a café racer and gets shorted clip-on handlebars for a racier seating position and a single seat with rear cowl.

Which brings us to the engine. The 650cc engine is smaller than the 750cc displacement we were expecting. Royal Enfield wanted to keep the engine big enough to be powerful for experienced riders, but not too powerful for those moving up from smaller machines.

As you can see, the motorcycles look absolutely delicious. The retro styling theme on the Interceptor in particular is something that will appeal to a lot of enthusiasts. The bike looks like it was belongs to the 60s, thanks to that slim one-piece seat and healthy use of chrome all over. For those who don’t know, the bike is inspired by the original Interceptor from the 60s and 70s.

The single round headlamp flanked with twin pod instrument cluster and tall handlebar make up the front end. The slim fuel tank with the classic badge and Monza-style fuel filler has knee recess for the rider. The bike’s tubular chassis is brand new and was developed by the company’s UK Technology Centre along with Harris Performance.
